Dorion's Books

Lynn Margulis

The Life and Legacy of a Scientific Rebel

When Margulis passed away in 2011, she left behind a groundbreaking scientific legacy that spanned decades. In this collection, Dorion Sagan, Margulis’s son and longtime collaborator, gathers together the voices of friends and colleagues to remark on her life and legacy, in essays that cover her early collaboration with James Lovelock, her fearless face-off with Richard Dawkins during the so-called “Battle of Balliol” at Oxford, the intrepid application of her scientific mind to the insistence that 9/11 was a false-flag operation, her affinity for Emily Dickinson, and more.

Death & Sex

Two books under one cover deliver a brief, incisive, and entertaining romp through the science of sex and death.

Notes from the Holocene

A Brief History of the Future

In a quirky yet highly thought-provoking style, Dorion Sagan uses his knowledge of philosophy, science, and sleight-of-hand magic to probe some of the deepest questions we face on Earth.
